KO Pies in South Boston

UPDATE: KO Pies reports the blocking was by a contractor working for Verizon, that the shop will be able to re-open today and that Verizon swore that, in the future, any similar work would only be done when the shop is normally closed.

KO Pies reports it had to close its South Boston outlet this morning "until further notice" when an excavation contractor showed up and blocked off all access, with no advance notice.

Needless to say, they're not very happy: Read more.

CuppaCoffee, which serves coffee and Australian meat pies on Merrimac Street, is planning a second location in the 275 Albany St. residential development.

Although the location would double the number of Australian-owned coffee shops in Boston, it would only represent a 33% increase in the number of Australian meat-pie places - in addition to CuppaCoffee, KO Pies sells the meat pies at locations in East Boston and South Boston.

When finished, 275 Albany will house 400 apartments in two buildings, across the street from the Ink Block project.

Meat pieA meat pieThe Boston Licensing Board this week gave KO Catering and Pies, 256 Marginal St. in East Boston, two more hours in which to serve up its flaky down-under comestibles.

The Australian meat-pie place convinced the board - along with neighbors and city officials - to extend its closing time from 10 p.m. to midnight. City officials and members of the Jeffries Point Neighborhood Association said KO has proven an asset to the area as the shipyard is revitalized.

There was no such luck, however, for Yong Hon, 772 Blue Hill Ave., Dorchester, whose request to extends its closing time from 1:30 a.m. to as late as 2:30 a.m. on weekends was quashed by the board.

Unlike in the East Boston case, city officials rose as one to urge rejection, so that people getting out of bars would have one fewer place at which to raise hell.

Cissy Huang says it's the sausage roll by KO Catering and Pies, which she made the mistake of tucking into on the T:

I had to stop eating it midway as to not frighten the people on the T with my slavish devotion.

Sometime this fall, A Street in South Boston will be getting KO Catering and Pies, "Boston's first Australian food truck serving savory pies and fresh food off the grill." No word if they'll also be serving vegemite sandwiches.
